Two Icons: Wrap Dress and Trench Coat 

There are pieces that are universally flattering and versatile. Let’s focus on two of those pieces: The Wrap Dress  and The Trench Coat. Two of my favorite pieces.

And that’s what we are Mixing Up in this post!
Before we dive deep into this one, a little bit of a disclaimer. A trench coat, a high quality one, is expensive. The one I have on is from JCrew. 


I bought it years ago but it still holds up. You can buy one that’s less expensive from Banana Republic or Ann Taylor. I pay close attention to the quality of the fabric in addition to the fit. A trench can elevate an outfit. I like to pair my trench coat with dresses and skinny pants. Clothes that are fitted seem to work better with this coat. That creates a balanced silhouette.

Next up is my wrap dress. I got this one at TJ Maxx it’s from Tommy Hillfiger. Wrap dresses work with pretty much any shape.


Wrap Dresses & Curves: Make sure that the wrap dress isn’t too revealing. That can happen real fast with Curves! So, just like everything else, proper fit is important.
